INDEPTH Intervention for Nicotine Dependence Education, Prevention, Tobacco and Health (INDEPTH) developed by the American Lung Association, for teens, is described as a four session alternative to suspension that addresses teen vaping. It is an interactive program that teaches students about nicotine dependence, establishing healthy alternatives and how to kick the unhealthy addiction that got them in trouble in the first place. Instead of focusing on punitive measures, INDEPTH™ is an interactive program that teaches students about nicotine dependence, establishing healthy alternatives and how to kick the unhealthy addiction that got them in trouble in the first place. INDEPTH™ was piloted at 11 schools across the United States with 60 percent of student participants reporting that they were willing to quit using tobacco products after completing the program.
Not On Tobacco Youth Cessation Program As a natural complement to INDEPTH, schools seeking to implement teen tobacco cessation programs can sign up for our Not On Tobacco (N-O-T) program. Not On Tobacco (N-O-T) is a voluntary teen-centered cessation program inclusive in addressing all tobacco product use, including e-cigarettes. These education programs are available for any school or community to establish to help our teens make healthier choices and training is available.
